In We Jews, Rabbi Steinsaltz explores the most important issues that concern  Jews today as Jews .  He provides wise and uplifting answers to Jews everywhere, whether they are secular and assimilated or orthodox– Are we a nation or a religion? Are the stereotypes of Jews really true? Why are Jews so controversial? How can we navigate the opposing forces of diversity, culture, and politics? Can we survive intermarriage and the loss of tradition? Do we still worship the Golden Calf? In this book, Rabbi Steinsaltz sees causes and consequences, achievements and failures, looks at the contemporary world, and observes the dreams and longings of modern Jewish people.  Written as an intimate and inspiring internal memo to the whole Jewish family, We Jews answers these questions and many more in a way that is at once insightful and inspiring.

Review:

"In this modest but powerful book the great teacher and scholar Adin Steinsaltz brings the gift of Shabbat′s rest and joy to all readers, whether or not they are Jewish or, for that matter, whether or not they call themselves religious at all." ––Robert Pollack, professor of biological sciences and director of the Center for the Study of Science and Religion, Columbia University "Rabbi Steinsaltz has written an inspiring and illuminating introduction to the Tanya." –– Library Journal "Adin Steinsaltz′s insights into the Sabbath could not be more timely. The light he casts on Judaism′s reflective, receptive surrender to the holy day of rest will open both Jewish and Christian readers′ eyes to long–lost dimensions of their own spiritual traditions." ––Stephen J. Dubner, author, Turbulent Souls and Confessions of a Hero Worshiper "For decades, Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz has come to be relied upon by countless Jews throughout the world as our teacher and spiritual guide. With The Miracle of the Seventh Day , Rabbi Steinsaltz once again reveals both the basic information we need to know as well as a doorway to the beauty, inner depths, and profound nature of his subject. This is an essential book for every Jewish home where the Sabbath is remembered and observed." ––Arthur Kurzweil, author and teacher
